Your best bet would be to take it to AAMCO or some other repair shop an have them run diagnostics on the car . They could hook up scanner an be able to tell you right away , instead of replacing parts you don't need .
This is going to be a transmission problem. What it is specifically can't be determined until it is out. A transmission shop like Aamco will diagnose this for about 80 dollars without a commitment on your part. Well worth the money.
The transmission in this car is shifted by electric solenoids and they are controlled by a computer, so the very 1st thing that must be done here to start the diagnostic check of the cause is to have the computer scanned for fault codes related to the transmission, you could just have a defective shift solenoid. Aamco Transmission shops will scan the system computer for free and give you a free preliminary diagnosis of what might be needed to repair your shifting problems.
Check the transmission fluid filter. You usually have this changed when you have the transmission fluid changed. The problem could also be a transmission solenoid that needs to be changed. The best thing is to take it into one of the national tranmission service centers and have the run a diagnostic for a minimal chanrge. Mineke or Aamco would work.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.
Trans needs to be looked at and diagnosed by a trans. shop, sounds like a clutch or band problem, but could also be a shift sensor or BCM acting out, see AAMCO Transmissions or the like for a free analogy.
you should change your fluid at or around every 100,000 miles. also look into changing the transmission filter when you change the fluid. IMPORTANT: if you are having transmission problems like a slipping gear of lack of gear, DO NOT change the fluid as it will most likely free up whatever is making your transmission work currently. take it to aamco and have them diagnose it, only if you are having trouble, otherwise changing the tranny fluid is something you can easily do in your driveway or garage.
If your overdrive light is flashing and the transmission is not shifting properly, you most likely have diagnostic codes stored in the tranmission control module. These codes relate to a specific sensor/solenoid/actuator and can help in diagnosing your problem. You will need a scan tool to read these codes. You should also check your transmission fluid level to see if it is at recommended level (engine at normal operating temp). The fluid should be red in color, if it is very dark or brown/black in color and has a burnt smell to it, your transmission has internal damage and will need to overhauled.
A qualified transmission shop (Aamco, Lee Miles, Gibralter, etc.) would be your best bet.
